I try a lot of lash growth products in an attempt to really grow some lashes that can turn heads. Or look like lashes in a magazine. Honestly, I'll settle for lashes that show up in pictures.
According to their website, RevitaLash® was developed by Dr. Michael Brinkenhoff as a special gift for his wife, Gayle, while she was recovering from breast cancer. Intensive chemotherapy treatments had damaged Gayle’s once beautiful eyelashes, leaving them sparse, breakable and fragile.
Reviews on the product have been mixed and lash growth products may not work on everyone. I've tried several that have worked and several that haven't.
However, I was gobsmacked when I caught a glimpse of my lashes one day. I knew they had been hitting my glasses for some time. But that happens every now and then, depending on which serum I am using. But I wasn't expecting this.
The main active ingredient in this is Trifluoromethyl Dechloro Ethylprostenolamide, a prostaglandin analogue, along with peptides and botanical ingredients. Wondering where you have heard that term before? Latisse contains Bimatoprost, which is another type of man-made prostaglandin analogue. The use of prostaglandin analouges made the news quite a bit when Latisse was released on the market.
RevitaLash does run the risk of darkening the skin it contacts, although I have not had any of those side effects.
Like other cosmetic products, RevitaLash has not been approved by the FDA and is for cosmetic use only. It is not a medical treatment and does not require a prescription. However, Latisse costs $120 per month and RevitaLash is closer to $25 per month. (One $150 tube will last 6 months.)
I have never, ever had lashes this long. I'm, well, gobsmacked. Have you used this? Did you experience any side effects or lash growth?
